Christ Was Their God

All of our fathers, even down to this time;
yea, they have testified of the coming of Christ,
and have looked forward,
and have rejoiced in his day which is to come.
And behold, he is God, and he is with them,
and he did manifest himself unto them,
that they were redeemed by him;
and they gave unto him glory,
because of that which is to come.
(Helaman 8:22-23)
